    Her biggest issue was talking big and grandeur plans, but not delivering on them. In addition when caught out and questioned on such plans, moved the goal posts and stated they were "aspirational goals" and "not all achievable".

    I'm sure ARU heard it (and fell for it) in the job interview. As mentioned before I give it 12 months and they'll be looking for replacements.

    She know she what she’s doing and I’m sure she’s food at her job... especially when she doesn’t have Dib stage managing her.

    A good appointment, I’m sure. She’ll do a better job than any of you critics would :p

    But at least they were progressive enough to employ a woman! Great consolation when your competition folds.

    She can't have gone that bad at the Dogs to get the CEO role at Rugby Union.

    Good luck to her. Rugby in Australia is in a deep hole, hopefully she can lead them out.

    I gather it has to do with the recent rise in women's sport in Australia. They bring her in then start pushing women's rugby union.

    Good luck to her. Australian Rugby Union has been screwed for a long time.

    The only thing I'm worried about is the potential of killing off club level Rugby as it is. It's rubbish as far as viewership goes but the fact that you can still go to a game for about $10 (or $5 for a year membership) is great. Nothing like a lazy day drinking beer and watching the Rugby. Funding wise though, Rugby is dead. It is no where near the level it needs to be to compete with the major club codes.
